22 Aug Which Animals Can Benefit from CBD Products
Owners of all kinds of animals are discovering the amazing benefits of CBD for the furry members of their family. Have you?
The beneficial effects of CBD for dogs have been widely discussed in the news and across the internet, but what about other animals? Can they also use CBD for its balancing effects?
All mammals – including humans, dogs, cats, horses, alpacas, goats, pigs, and much more – are born with the system necessary to benefit from CBD, meaning your animals at home can benefit from CBD in the same way as you.
Can I Give CBD to My Animals at Home?
Humans and dogs aren’t the only mammals who can take advantage of CBD’s effects. The truth is that all mammals, including your animals at home can use CBD. That is because all mammals share a common endocannabinoid system, a major signaling network that is responsible for influencing a wide range of functions and keeping them in balance.
Your animal’s endocannabinoid system, or ECS for short, is working continuously to monitor functions and will trigger adjustments whenever outside factors cause any of the functions to become unstable, returning them back to homeostasis. A properly functioning endocannabinoid system is crucial for maintaining health and wellness in your dog, cat, horse, etc.
How Does CBD Work?
Pet owners everywhere are discovering the natural benefits of supporting the endocannabinoid systems of their animals with supplements containing plant-derived cannabinoids like CBD. CBD is a naturally occurring, non-psychoactive, and non-toxic cannabinoid found in cannabis plants like hemp.
Plant-derived cannabinoids like CBD share a molecular structure to your animal’s own endocannabinoids, which means that they can interact with their cannabinoid receptors.
When you give your dog, cat, or horse hemp-derived CBD, the cannabinoid is absorbed into their bloodstream where it naturally stimulates the endocannabinoid system and encourages its efforts to keep your pet’s many functions in balance.
Cannabinoids like CBD can also build up in their body, which causes an increase in the number of cannabinoid receptors. This makes their endocannabinoid system’s more active and more sensitive to stimulation by cannabinoids, further supporting its efforts to maintain homeostasis.
What are the Best Products for Animals?
Phyto Animal Health offers a full line of CBD-infused products designed with both pets and livestock animals in mind. Vitality™ and Vitality-X™ products in particular are an excellent choice for supplementing the endocannabinoid systems of a wide range of animals.
Phyto Animal Health’s Vitality™ is a full-spectrum hemp oil product, meaning it contains all the same nutrients, like vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, terpenes, and of course, cannabinoids present in the source hemp plant. This allows the active compounds present in Vitality™ to work together as they would in the natural hemp plant in what is commonly referred to as the “entourage effect”.
Vitality™ CBD supplements are crafted using non-GMO hemp that naturally contain low levels of THC. In fact, hemp contains no more than 0.3% THC per dry weight. Because our pet-specific CBD oil supplements contain no more than trace levels of THC, they can be given to your pet without you having to worry about intoxication.
Our full-spectrum hemp oil is combined with MCT oil sourced from coconuts for an easy to pour, easy to measure CBD liquid. Vitality™ is safe to give to your dog or cat daily to promote overall health and wellness.
For pet owners who feel more comfortable giving their pets CBD oil supplements that are completely devoid of THC, we provide Vitality-X™. The hemp oil used in the creation of Vitality-X™ undergoes a proprietary purification process that filters excess plant material, waxes, and all but the smallest traces of THC, leaving behind a high CBD oil.
Vitality-X™ also has a higher concentration of CBD than Vitality™, allowing you to administer larger servings of CBD to your pet or livestock animal without fear over increased THC levels. It’s higher overall potency also makes Vitality-X™ an excellent choice for owners of larger pets and livestock animals like goats, alpacas, and horses.
Like Vitality™, Vitality-X™ blends our CBD oil with MCT oil for a liquid CBD product that can be mixed into your pet’s food, added to a treat, or even dripped onto their paws to be licked off.
